    you can't claim to support American jobs while at the same time saying its ok to ship them to China.

    Well we "shipped" our Space Program transportation to the Russians. But I'm sure it's not at the "slave-like wages".

    Where are you getting this hyperbolic over the top nonsense?

    From the letters I am getting from the government telling me exactly what to do, how, and when.
    "We need to ask some very tough questions of the senator from Illinois. It's not enough to be black, it's not enough to be articulate, it's not enough to be eloquent and a media darling. The only question will be how deaf an ear, or how blind an eye will people turn in order to turn a frog into a prince." -Eddie Huff

    Could you please tell us who named you to speak for 311 million Americans?

    I think its terrific to express YOUR OWN opinion about taxes and the government. But please do not pretend to speak for the American people because you do not.

    Could you please be more specific so your allegations can go beyond the mere right wing talking points heard on bad talk radio and into the realm of reality?

    The Declaration of Independence.

    That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness- The Declaration of Independence
    .

    Aren't the polls interesting? I don't represent 311 million, but apparently I represent 55% of them, at least on this one issue.

    Conservatives don't understand economics. That's why they have to depend on the government to survive and also blame the government whenever their businesses fail.
    The only problem with this post, is that nothing you've posted so far is even true.

    Things like infrastructure were largely built by government. It's one of the few things the government can effectively build the economy.
    The interstate system was initially created for rapid military deployment.
    Just like the Romans, people took advantage of it and turned it into a more efficient method of deliver goods and services.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Wasn't it President Eisenhower that established this program?
